When I pull the pto switch it want start the pto clutch.I have changed the pto switch and the clutch does click.But it want engage.Does any one have any idea what I need to do next?
They are normally electro magnetic clutches, the click is the cluch engaging so i would guess it is working, arev you sure the belt is not broken or lose?

Try spraying carb cleaner in pto and use compress air to blow out all dust from pto and then start and see if pto starts engaging.------ But if that is not helping then its quire possible then wiring to the pto clutch is got worn or shorted.------- You need to look at the wiring harness or "pigtail" that powers the electric PTO clutch (in the area of the clutch). Since you said "seem to be drawing current from the battery" I think the wiring to the PTO clutch may have gotten hit by the broken belt and damaged to the point that a portion of the "hot lead" is shorting to ground (bare part of hot wire is touching metal frame or other "grounded" part of tractor. If the belt did not "rip" the wiring out of the electric clutch completely, it may have stretched it enough to strip the wire insulation away INSIDE the clutch assembly. If that be the case......you are likely going to need a new clutch assembly. If, however, you find that a bare wire OUTSIDE the clutch is the culprit....you can fix that. You can solder and tape it or you can use crimp type "**** splices" to repair the damaged spot. If you find a bare place in the wiring, examine it closely to see if any of the individual "fibers" or strands of wire have been severed. If any have been cut, you need to snip that section out before soldering or "**** splicing". ------- Try engageing the clutch with the engine off and key on. sit on the tractor so you saftey switches are closed. You will HEAR the clutch engage if it is working. If not then check wires as mentioned above. If you look and look and can not find bad wires then disconnect plug to clutch and test wires with volt meter for 12V. If no juice trace back to find prob. If you do have 12v pull clutch and inspect on work bench, you can jump it and see if it engages too. ------- For pto switch wiring diagram, click this link below:---- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/08/husqvarna-riding-lawn-mower-yth2448.html ---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
